A Word on Scope
While this function is technically scoped for Gateway and Perspective Sessions, it's intended for use in Vision Clients.
When calling this function from the Gateway scope, the sound will not play unless the operating system has been configured to allow services to play sounds (an uncommon scenario).
When calling this function from Perspective, the script also executes on the gatewayGateway, meaning the caveat above about allowing services to play sounds is a factor. In addition, the sound would will play on the Gateway, not the session. When attempting to To play sounds from a Perspective Session, it's recommended that to use the play() component method on the Perspective Audio component.
